BEYOND THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN

tr., John Brownlie

6.6.8.6

I

Beyond the clouds of Heaven,

The Lord of life ascends;

Behold Him rise towards the skies,

Who for our race was given.

II

He came to earth Whose grace

Hath made our vileness clean;

That we may rise towards the skies,

And serve before His face.

III

He dwelt on earth Who gave

Himself for sinful man,--

That we may rise towards the skies,

Whom he came down to save.

IV

We would no longer gaze,

O Christ, to where Thou art,--

But, that we rise, towards the skies,

Do Thou Thy servants raise.
